Uncle Bud was a truly remarkable man. He served as a father figure, business adviser and sounding board for all sorts of questions from the Carter family. Bud's sharp intellect, curiosity and sense of humor made you admire and respect the man as soon as you met him. He was always willing to lend a helping hand or fatherly advice no matter how busy he was with his own life. Pat and Bud were a truly remarkable couple who left an indelible impression on everyone they met. We are all better people today merely because we knew this amazing couple!
Our deepest sympathy to the entire Powers family!
Dave & Karen Carter
Sincere sympathy goes out to the family of "Bud" Powers. I would see him in church every Sunday and his personality and presence always made me feel so good. He was truly an amazing person - always so happy, funny, and welcoming to everyone around him. I will miss seeing him.... My thoughts and prayers go out to all of you at this time.
It is truly the end of an era for Elmira.
I will miss a friend and one hell of a man. Farewell, my friend.
